Testing and Assessment

A variety of classroom and school-wide assessments are given throughout the school year to measure academic progress.  While these assessments provide useful information to educate students, the assessments do not tell us everything about a student and the potential they possess.  The students of the Pillager School District are certainly more than a "test score" and will be treated as such.  

The assessments that students take are indicated below:

STAR test (Measures of Academic Progress):                        Grades 2-8

ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery):           Grade 10, 11, or 12 (optional)

ACT + Writing:                                                                         Grade 11

MCA Reading:                                                                         Grade 3-8, 10

MCA Mathematics:                                                                  Grade 3-8, 11

MCA Science:                                                                         Grade 5, 8, HS after completion of a Life Science course
